problem #2

May 082007

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles


I was stopped at a light and when the light turned green I vehicle accelerated and the pedal stuck, and I hit the brakes and it won't budge. When I was accelerating I was only trying to go about 45 mph, and at the time when the pedal began to stick I was going 25-30 mph, and then after the pedal stuck I was accelerated at over 70 mph by the time I pulled over. I stepped on the brakes and it slowed down to about 15 mph. It was still trying to accelerate, so I put it in park and car was still trying to accelerate..........RPM was at 4, and I was sitting still, and foot wasn't on the brake, almost hit someone. This was the 3rd time this happened, but this time I actually almost got into a car accident. Checked on recalls, and they said that this car was not listed as being in the accelerator pedal"recall. I took the car to a repair shop, and they stated that it needed a new pedal. I still believe it should be under the accelerator pedal recall.

2004 Pontiac Grand Prix. The consumer was involved in an accident in February 2005. While trying to make a left turn the car would not stop. The car seemed to move faster even though the consumer was applying the brakes. The consumer received a recall letter and the consumer believed the recall contributed to the accident.
